  • Choosing a Diet is Like Choosing a Spouse - article by Matt Monarch

    If anyone reading this has ever had a consultation with Dr. Fred Bisci, then you probably heard him say that "Choosing a diet is like choosing a spouse... You are going to have to live with it for the rest of your life!!!" One of the most REWARDING moments for me is when someone improves their diet to the point where he or she can truly experience the joy of healing and regeneration! Contrastingly, the most PAINFUL thing to witness is when someone who has taken it that far then reverts back to old eating habits. Not only are these individuals catapulted back to their previous situation, but in some cases their level of health plummets even further than before. Why would their health plummet further than ever before? By adhering to a healthier diet-lifestyle choice consistently for a long time, you will go through PROFOUND PHYSICAL CHANGES. As the terrain of your body is being purified, you become EXTREMELY "CLEAN" on a cellular level. Sounds great right? So, why all the capital letters to get your attention? It is vital that you understand the consequences of this journey you may be about to embark on. By eating a "cleaner" intake, you will literally be forming a NEW and MUCH CLEANER body, using healthier foods as your building materials. This achievement is full of rewards, but it also comes with a stern word of caution. Previously you may have eaten certain foods - processed meals, meat, dairy, refined sugars, and so on - without much immediate noticeable effect (though they contribute in the long-run of course to a state of disease). Yet those same foods would be exponentially more damaging now, to your new, CLEANER body. Many people begin a diet wanting to lose a few pounds, with the full intention of returning to their previous eating and lifestyle habits afterwards. Since we are dealing here with degenerative diseases and lifestyle changes, this type of dietary wavering can lead to serious consequences. You've surely heard the phrase, "...'Til death us do part". Are you ready now to commit to a permanent lifestyle change? One of Dr. Fred Bisci's patients recovered from a serious degenerative disease by adopting a healthier diet. As always, Dr. Bisci explained that the patient must eat this way for the rest of his life to remain healthy, and warned that relapsing into his old ways would cause problems. This now healthy and vibrant man soon attracted the woman of his dreams, and they married. Unfortunately, his wife would become upset if he didn't eat the food she prepared, so he began eating her rich ethnic meals. Not surprisingly, this man's illness came back in full force. Upon getting confirmation from his doctor that his disease had returned, he and his wife both agreed that this was the last he'd ever taste of her traditional cooking. Fortunately this man was able to heal once again by adhering to a better diet. Choosing your diet is like choosing a spouse: you are going to be living with it for the rest of your life! As seen from the above example, your commitment is critical. Which diet path will you choose? To be perfectly honest, adhering to a strict 100% Raw Food Diet right out of the gate can be challenging on many levels. The changes are extreme: a constant empty feeling in the stomach, emotional and psychological issues rising to the surface, cravings, extreme detox symptoms, the learning curve of raw food preparation, and the biggest hurdle often being a feeling of lack of support. Many who attempt this sudden transition find themselves hurtling back into the luring arms of processed food. Since we know that this yo-yoing can easily result in the return of disease, excess weight, ill health and so on, the choice you make is important. If you are not confident that you can commit to a 100% Raw Food Diet, you can still have great success with an Intermediate Whole Food Diet. At some point you may choose to take an Intermediate Diet onwards, a bit closer towards the 100% Raw Food Diet, step by step. It is wonderful to go forward, yet keep in mind that each step onwards is a renewed life-long commitment, because going backwards at any stage can have unpleasant consequences. Whichever diet you choose, the key is to stick with it and refrain from going backwards!

The originator of the Raweo Cookie and 'Award Winning' Kale chips, Blessings now brings you... the Contrast Cookie (Vanilla Cookie/Cacao Cream!) and the Thumbalina Cookie (Spirulina/Gojiberry Thumbprint!). These soft 1.5oz cookies are EXTREMELY POPULAR and you will LOVE THEM... Ulimana's Lemon Fig Pecan Bars (like a raw Fig Newton) Ulimana are well known for their outstanding raw chocolate products. Simply said... the majority of people I ask say that Ulimana have the BEST Raw Chocolate in the United States. Just the other day I asked a woman if she'd ever tried Ulimana Chocolate, and like a French woman, she took her finger tips and KISSED THEM INTO THE AIR... in appreciation...! Then I was talking to Theresa, the owner of Ulimana, and she told me about their new Lemon Fig Pecan Bars. I couldn't believe it when she told me that there was NO RAW CACAO in them!!!! All of her products usually have Raw Chocolate!!! She runs a Raw Chocolate Company!!! However, she stated that she feels the Lemon Fig Pecan Bars are now her BEST TASTING product and that they taste JUST LIKE FIG NEWTONS. IMMEDIATELY... I bought them blindly without even tasting them... (which I never do!!!) And...my instinct was correct. You've got to try these Lemon Fig Bars. I was thinking that the lemon might interfere with the 'Fig Newton' Taste... however... there is something about it that just fits right in there!!!!... They are absolutely DIVINE... And... Last but not LEAST... Coconut Mulberry Chia Delight Cereal A looooong time ago, the 'Better Than Roasted' Company sent me a sample of their 'Coconut Mulberry Chia Delight'. I never got around to trying it. One day I was at my Dad's house (who is not on the healthiest diet) and I gave the cereal to him. I supply him with many different cereals from our website to give him a healthy meal in the morning (He eats these cereals every morning!!!). He literally has about 30 bags of cereal stock-piled in his office and so he added the 'Coconut Mulberry Delight' cereal onto the pile. Weeks later... I get an email from my dad to order more of the 'Coconut Mulberry Chia Delight' Cereal for him. I said, "dad... I don't carry this cereal... it was a sample. Is it your favorite???". He replied... "YESSSS!!!!!" I thought to myself, if my dad LOVES this cereal, then this cereal can be very beneficial to others trying to eat a healthier lifestyle. I think this was his first introduction to Chia Seeds and that is why he LOVED it so much... We now carry the product and it is truly GREAT!!!! Here are all the latest new additions to The Raw Food World Store: AND... Many More New Products COMING SOON!!!

    Shining The Spotlight - Chakra Earthsong

    WOW!!!!!... I've known Chakra for MANY YEARS NOW... Chakra is like the 'Raw Food Mother' of Ojai... Everyone into Raw Foods here in Ojai knows Chakra... Chakra is like a mother to me.

She's AMAZING, going on Strict 'Seasonal' Green Juice Fasts without any sugar. What a WILL-POWER this woman has!!! Chakra is best known as one of the ULTIMATE Raw Food Chefs!!! I JUST LOVE going to her house for dinner, because I know that I will be well fed with the most AMAZING tasting food! Chakra worked as the Head Editor for Kevin Trudeau's 'Natural Cures' Company. She was a key point person in communicating with Kevin Trudeau, on many levels. About a year ago, Chakra decided that it was time to create her own business... and that is what she did... Doing what she does BEST!!! Check out Chakra's new website by clicking HERE. Chakra just started teaching Raw Food & Intermediate Diet Classes and if you are in the Ojai area, I HIGHLY recommend that you attend...

If you attend a class with Chakra, you will learn how to make healthy high energy raw or properly cooked food from master whole foods chef & teacher, Chakra Earthsong. To learn more about Chakra's Classes click HERE. And... Guess What!!!... She has FREE Raw Food, Juices, Smoothies, and Intermediate Diet Recipes on her site. Just click HERE and put your curser over 'Recipes' to view them all! Additionally, there is a lot of useful information on her website about cleansing, detox, handling candida and much more, so I recommend spending some time there. She has an AWESOME store selling ONLY products that she TRULY believes in. I also recommend shooting her an email under the 'contact us' page. Chakra would be a great lady to connect with and she has THOUSANDS of connections. She's amazing!!! Chakra also does Consultations. Chakra has coached hundreds of satisfied lifestyle, wellness, and holistic nutrition clients over the last two decades. She offers hands-on classes in the kitchen, and private and group settings.

Personalized food plans are designed to suit the distinctive preferences, needs, challenges, goals and circumstances of each client. Additionally, her lovely hubby, Rhythm Earthsong, is a total STUD!!! They are so IN LOVE it's crazy and they have been together for many years - their relationship is so vibrant and inspirational! Rhythm is a music writer and producer. I have seen him in action and he too is AMAZING!!!! He writes for a variety of R & B, Pop, Jazz and Modern Rock artists. The connections he works to develop with whichever artist he works with... is SOMETHING ELSE!!! ...and I know that you are going to think this is CRAZY... Both of their First and Last Names were never changed!!!! These were their birth names...Chakra and Rhythm Earthsong! UNREAL!!! Chakra and Rhythm also have a charming twenty-smthg son named Kai who just moved out to LA and is going to school there. That must be an exciting life-changing for everyone and we wish them all the best, with all their great endeavours...
